Mahiya is exceptional, with lots of attention to detail and many unique ideas and features. She is a custom, professionally built boat (at a licensed yard in the Philippines). I personally supervised and took part in the build. For 2 years, 6 days each week I and a well-trained, highly skilled crew worked meticulously and methodically. Construction started in January 2007. She was completed and launched December 2008, 23 months later. Outfitting continued for several years. After sailing in the Philippines for a year she was shipped to Florida. She is USCG Documented, and has a Jones Act waiver which allows her to be used for charter work (she has a Coastwise Endorsement).


She is unique in many ways. No costs were spared on building her! She is the first Tiki 30 ever strip planked (cost an extra $10,000). The hulls are beautiful. We used strips of lauan (a Philippine hard wood) milled on site and perfectly molded to create nice lines and eliminate the "step" at the water line. The hulls were then glassed inside and out using West System Epoxy and cloth. All bulkhead to hull joints have large fillets and cloth for extra strength. All hatches have been built with storm coamings. All stainless is 316. There is even a 316 stainless steel strip running down the entire length of the keels for protection while beaching her.

She is powered by a Yamaha 9.9 High Thrust Long Shaft Sail Drive with Tachometer and Hour Meter.

The mast is carbon fiber, as is the aft net tube and the bimini frame, all custom built for me in New Zealand (cost $5,000).

All 6 nets were custom build in Saint Petersburg, FL (cost $2,500).

The working sails were made by Hyde Sails. The jib is on a Pro Furl (roller furling system) and has a foam luff added for better shape while furled.

The main sail has three reef points.

There is also a screecher sail on a continuous loop furler. All sails are on 2:1 purchases for ease of raising and she is set up for single handed sailing with all lines led back to cockpit.

All cockpit cushions are cut from marine closed cell floatation boat foam. All material is Sunbrella (cushions, bimini, sail covers, hatch covers).


                  She is completely outfitted:

                  Auto helm 2000 with Remote Control

                  Wharram Wind Vane Self Steering (with trim tab on port rudder)

    ICOM VHF & SSB/HAM (802) with Automatic antenna tuner (AT140). Antenna is inside standing rigging.

    And Much More!

    (The bottom was painted 18 months ago along with all new Colligo Dux Synthetic Rigging with Colligo Line Terminator Blocks.

    At that time I installed all new beam lashings and net lashings, and the winches were stripped, cleaned and greased).

                  She cost me roughly $140,000 to build and outfit, and another $10,000. to ship her to here.

                 Mahiya is not a typical Wharram, she is a Yacht.

She is listed with a Yacht Broker for $94,000. However, I retain the right to sell her myself.

This is your chance to own one of The Nicest Tiki 30s ever built, at a bargain price!
